Creating Space for A Home Gym With a Wallbed

May 20, 2022 | Interior Design, Space Saving, Wallbed Tips

Converting a spare room or living space to a home gym can be done within seconds with a wallbed! Designed for saving space, A a murphy bed maximizes small spaces and allows a single room to be used for multiple purposes!
At Wallbeds ‘n More Pasadena, we can help you find and customize the best wall bed to meet your individualized needs. Regardless of your home or space, we can guarantee we have something to match your interior design style! Whether you need your wallbed to fit next to a treadmill or have built-in cupboards and drawers to store items like yoga mats, resistance bands, and workout clothes, we can build the piece of furniture you’re looking for.

What Is a Wall Bed?

Don’t be confused with the old-style fold-away bed of the past. A Murphy wall bed is a bed hidden in a piece of sleek and beautiful furniture. When it is time to use, the bed pulls seamlessly down from a wall.  When folded up, the bed takes up no space and looks like any other cabinet or piece of furniture. This is how a wall bed instantly transforms a space into an entirely different room with multiple functions.

A Murphy bed, also called a wall bed, isn’t just a place to sleep. It can be customized into a complex unit that includes storage solutions such as drawers, bookshelves, and cabinets. Wardrobe siding can be added to create closet space to a room that otherwise lacks it. Some models are able to transition into desks or tables, and some even have the ability to add lighting features with USB outlets!

Maximize Your Home’s Square Footage

When creating a home gym in your spare room, you want to start by thinking about how to get the most out of your space. A spare room is a great thing to have as it can give you the opportunity for more than just extra sleeping space that may be occasionally used by guests.

Another benefit of our Murphy beds is the weight of each wall bed itself.  Our models are lightweight and easy to fold into the wall making them ideal for quick clean-up when you need the guest room to rapidly transform into a large open space for your home workout. All mattresses at our store are sold separately from the Murphy bed furniture itself which means you can customize your mattress firmness preference as well.

Crafting a Your Space for Working OUt

To dedicate this specific space to exercise, you should think about how to customize the wall bed furniture to meet your fitness needs. With a murphy bed, you’ll not need to worry about working around a bedframe to find space for your yoga, pilates, HITT, cardio, and more. The free space can easily fit treadmills, bikes, ellipticals, and other machines needed to sweat.

Cabinets and Cupboards can be added to store your exercise equipment when you are not using your home gym. Yoga mats, small dumbbells, kettlebells, jump ropes, and more can be out of sight! The construction of the wallbeds is sturdy and made of real wood, assuring your equipment can be stored safely.

Another custom addition you might consider is adding a mirror mounted to the bottom of the wall bed. When folded up and you are working out, you can use it to watch and perfect your form and movements! An additional benefit of a mirror is that it makes any room seem larger than it actually is.

Additionally, a Murphy bed can also have custom-built shelving or even a desk or table surface to hold equipment like stereos or televisions.

Home Gym and Guest Room Interior Design

Since a wall bed unit can fit either against one wall or into a corner, this leaves you with additional wall space for other helpful equipment during exercises such as wall-mounted fans or wall mounts for heavier weights.

Vertical storage is a simple solution to maximize space and can be used to mount gear, motivational posters or imagery, or a whiteboard to break down your workouts, and more.

When the bed folds down, you can highlight a special piece of artwork on the wall with a custom spotlighting option that Wallbeds “n” More Pasadena can install, or you can add open bookshelves to showcase decorative items. Our Murphy bed models can be customized with the type of (real) wood used, finish coloring, and hardware to match your home’s style perfectly!
